    Is this something I should worry a lot about. Its a small red bump on the top section in the middle of that part. I noticed its mostly on the chicks with pasty butts.

    I've cleaned most of the ones with pasty butts before letting them under the heat lamp again but I hadta quit when I noticed most of them were going to nap I left them be because they were freaked out by people moving their brooder and lawnmower starting up.

    Is there anything else I should do?

    I saw that early and though some chicks do have scabby navels. I'm talking about the vent.

    This is a pic I found of another chickens vent and I put a red dot so its placement would give you guys a better picture
